Pet Shop Quartet

Pet shop quartet


My First Blog Entry- Dogs, Pigs, and Pots

Today I unloaded the cutest kiln load yet–containing 3 dogs and a pig.  They are sitting on my wedging table looking like a pet shop quartet.  And they made it through with no broken ears (the most delicate part). That’s an accomplishment. I’ll try to post a picture tomorrow.

I’m firing my last load of work tonight–a batch of majolica glazed terra cotta painted with bright (I hope) colors.  I dragged along some unglazed terra cotta teapots and sugars and creamers, and unused bags of terra cotta clay in my last move. I’m moving my studio (to my new and improved location on Bridge St. in Shelburne Falls) next week, and couldn’t stand to move that unfinished work again.  So I threw some mugs, made some tiles and platters, and will have it done just in time for the pottery trail.  Can’t wait to see how this experimental stuff comes out!
